Seminoles Finish Eighth At Lady Gator Invitational

March 11, 2007




GAINESVILLE, Fla. –
Florida State University sophomore All-America Caroline Westrup led the field on the final day with a three-under par 67 and finished in third place in the individual standings and the Seminole women’s golf team finished in eighth place in the team standings as competition in the Lady Gator Invitational at the University of Florida Golf Course came to a close. Westrup began the final round tied for 21st in the individual standings and moved up 18 positions to earn her second top three finish of the spring 2007 season.

Florida, the host school, won the team championship for the second consecutive season as the Gators outdistanced second-place TCU by 14 strokes. Gator senior Sandra Gal earned individual medalist honors as she finished with an even par score of 210 over the 54-hole event.

Westrup earned the third place finish as she carded a 216 total to finish six strokes off the winning pace of 216 set by Gal. Westrup played well in rounds one and two with scores of 72 and 67 but faltered in the second round with a seven-over par score of 77. She has now carded three sub-par scores in her first nine rounds of the season and has earned a first place, a third place and a tied for 16th place finish in three events this spring.

Seminole junior Whitney Brummett played very consistently throughout the tournament and finished in a tie for 16th place with single-round scores of 74-74-75 for a total of 223. Sophomore Lauren Cousart played well during the final round as she carded a two-over par score of 72. She began the event with an 83 in the first round, a 77 in the second and her tournament-best 72 in the third and final round.

The Seminoles will next compete in the Liz Murphey Intercollegiate at the University of Georgia March 23-25.
